The heatwave and subsequent downpours have brought everything on – the garden is looking spectacular and people can come and visit on Saturday, August 6 or Sunday, August 7 from 10am to 4pm.

The NGS “Yellow Book” gives the following description of the garden: “Exuberant, lush, vibrant perennial planting highlighted with grasses in this hidden, peaceful and surprising garden offering many views and features.”

In the garden, members of St Michael’s Church will be offering tea, coffee and home made cake menu so visitors are encouraged to stay to eat and drink during their visit.
